Praise be to Allaah as befits His glory and the greatness of His power. I offer the praise of a humble, repentantservant who is need of His guidance and help. I thank Him for the blessings which He has bestowed upon me,and for honouring me with His aid to write this book, which has been so well-received by its readers and hasbeen more popular than I ever expected. The first and second editions (of the Arabic original) sold out within afew short months of publication, and there was a great demand for the book, so I promptly prepared a thirdedition, with some important revisions and additions, most notably a new chapter, entitled "The Muslim womanand her sonsand daughters-in-law."The circulation of this book was not confined only to Arab readers; it has also reached a Turkish audience. Ithas been translated by more than one publishing house in Turkey, and tens of thousands of copies have beenprinted. I have received copies of two of these Turkish editions. All this, if it indicates anything, shows thatthere is a great thirst among non-Arab Muslim peoples for knowledge from the pure sources of Islam. There is adeep longing for serious, useful Islamic books from the Arab world, especially on the topic of the Muslimwoman. Publishers are racing to translate this book into their own languages, so that they could present it tothose people who have woken up to the authentic, pure guidance of Islam, which offers nourishment to theirminds and souls. This is the best provision for the Muslim peoples at this time of reawakening. I have receivedoffers from a number of publishers to translate this book into English and French, which should be done soon,
in sha Allaah.
All praise and glory be to Allaah praise be to Allaah the Lord of the Worlds.
Dr. Muhammad `Ali al-HashimiRiyadh,15th Shawwal 1416, 4th March 1996
At a time when Muslim and Non-Muslim women are being harshly attached and attracted by the "feministtheories and studies" this book is a good approach and a reminder that Islam has held women as highlyesteemed and respected. It is enough that the Holy Quran contains a full chapter on women. The sources of Islam i.e. the Holy Quran and the Prophetic Traditions have always spoken of the women's rights and madethem full partners in the human venture of history more than any other religion or thought. Women in Islam are;mothers, sisters, partners, workers, scholars and business owners and managers. etc. Though this book outlinesthe ideal
personality as it should be according to the Quran and Sunnah Husbands, sons anddaughters will also draw very much benefit from it. A true
is the one who is alert, knowledgeable,true to herself as well as to others. She is righteous, and faithful. She balances her obligations to Allaah herparents and children. She does not excel in one thing and neglect the other. She is a Quranic example to follow-,she is a woman whose examples to follow are the she-companions of the Messenger , sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam. Her ideals are the wives of the Messenger , sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam. The reader will find all thisand much more in this book, which Dr. Hashmi wrote in a Arabic and was also broadcast on Riyadh Radio.This is his second book I.I.P.H translated into English. We hope the readers will find it really informative andcomprehensive and pray Allaah for the best reward for them and ourselves. May the peace and blessing of Allaah be upon Muhammad , sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam, his household and all his companions.
Mohammed Abdul-Mohsin Al TuwaijriInternational Islamic Publishing House (I.I.P.H)Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
At a time when Muslim women are being increasingly attracted by "feminist theories" and "women's studies,"this book serves as a timely reminder that the unique and authentic sources of Islam have always spoken of therights of women and recognized women as full partners in the human venture of history. The translation of thisbook into English will render this valuable information more readily accessible to all the Muslims whosemother-tongue is not Arabic. Dr. Muhammad Ali Hashmi is a well-known writer in the Arab world. Born inSyria, he is the author of numerous books on Islamic and literary topics. This is his second book translated intoEnglish; the first was "The Ideal Muslim."
